Mikey Shorts Halloween (BeaverTap Games)

Here's a sneak peek of our upcoming FREE game Mikey Shorts Halloween with 4 new levels!

As a thank you for all of the support for Mikey Shorts, we wanted to make some fun and challenging Halloween-themed Story Mode levels. Since we used the maximum amount of Game Center leaderboards in the original version, we decided to package up the 4 new levels into a separate Halloween edition and release it for FREE!



RUN, JUMP, and SLIDE through the night to help Mikey Shorts rescue the spirits!
  • 4 Spooky Levels
  • 2 Halloween Themed Environments
  • 12 New Disguises
  • Widescreen Support
  • Universal App





We're always available to answer questions (mikeg123 and qpawn).

BeaverTap Games, creators of the 2D platformer Mikey Shorts and Mikey Hooks.

The level designs in Mikey Shorts Halloween have a flow that's similar to the Challenge levels in the original Mikey Shorts, but with one main path like the Story Mode levels.

By having a new app, we're able to give each of the 4 levels its own Game Center leaderboard!

So Mikey Shorts Halloween will be a whole new game (Not an update to Mikey Shorts), and will have new story levels. The game will be FREE.

When are we expecting the game to be released? In a few weeks?

Yeah, we decided on a new free game. Apple only allows 25 leaderboards for each game (Mikey Shorts has 24 Story and 1 Challenge) and we wanted each Halloween level to have a board.

We submitted it a few days ago. We'll probably release it very soon after it gets approved. Maybe next week! The original Mikey Shorts will also get the 12 new disguises.

Can you add a sexy nurse costume or something like that that girls wear all the time during halloween? Not that Mikey is a crossdresser like Wimp, but it would be funny.

Is there a leader board for total score too? To display the best players from all four levels combined?

And how about achievements?

There is no combined leaderboard, and no achievements. We're treating the levels as Story levels (even though they are Challenge-like), so we wanted to go with individual leaderboards.

That isn't to say we won't add more in the future. We're just not sure what all we want to do with this version -- maybe a Mikey Shorts "Seasons". But we did want to get this out in time for Halloween.
